My husband was recently diagnosed with a lung disease. In order to increase his life expectancy, his doctor recommends a lung transplant BUT in order to get on the list he has to lose a considerable amount of weight. Losing any amount of weight–beyond the vanity weight of 5 to 10 lbs–is quite the challenge when your medical condition prevents you from doing vigorous excercise.
So what does his ever so helpful wife suggest???
“Honey, you should work on drinking a gallon of water a day?”
He looked at me ever so lovinginly and replied quite animatedly, “I ain’t drinking no damn gallon of water! That’s crazy!”
We both cracked up laughing. Even through this challenge of his illness, this man can still make me bust a gut laughing.
After we recovered from our laughing fit, I replied, “Well, honey, you you can interchange that gallon of juice you drink in a day with a gallon of water. It is the same gallon.” 😉
Sometimes small changes can seem big until you look at them comparatively to something else you do.
